|2019-07-28 Happy 6th Birthday Nasomi!|
On July 28th, 2019 the Nasomi officially turns 6 years old, and this of course means kicking off our Summer Festival!
Moogle BoB is at it again, he managed to let 3 additional bull's escape as well! They aren't particularly dangerous. However, they are impervious to all forms of damage. For that reason, we have fashioned special katana's on sale from the Festive Moogles. Pick up one of the katana's and wack away.
You'll find the bull's in South Gustaberg, East Sarutabaruta, and East Ronfarure, but only during the daylight hours. Everyone know's bulls are afraid of the dark.
We've made it so anyone can attack them, however ONLY the killer and his companions will get credit. Once the deed is done, visit the festive moogle for your rewards!

|2019 Egg Hunt Eggstravaganza!|
It is I, Magical Moogle Henry, and this year I have been put in charge of our Eggstravaganza by the MEC(Moogle Event Committee)! As a result, much effort has been put into hiding eggs throughout Vana'diel. The eggs have been hidden in North Gustaberg, West Sarutabaruta, and East Ronfaure. Each egg has a special letter inscribed on it. Collect eggs with certain combinations and turn them in to your Festive Moogles located in Port Bastok, Windurst Walls, and Port San'dOria for eggcelent rewards! The combinations are as follows:
• First 3 - The first 3 letters of your name
• Strait 8 - Any 8 consecutive letters
• 7 of a kind - Any 7 eggs with the same letter
As a special bonus, emperor/empress bands will be active for the duration of the event, 4/14 through 4/29!
So get out there and get your egg on, or you'll end up with yolk on your face!
In this maintenance...
• Fixed a melee tp issue where it wasn't gaining properly
• Fixed a crash involving throwing weapons
• Fixed cyclone wing
• Fixed LoO spawn conditions
• Fixed some crates in limbus which could let you reset your 2hr's to frequently
• Fixed an issue with ammo not adding in tp
• Fixed a duration issue with tonko and deodorize
In this maintenance:
• Fishing spots can "dry up", if you don't catch anything after a while, try a new spot!
• Ranged calculations have been reworked to have an optimal range! Short bow, long bow, cross bow, gun, and throwing weapons all have different optimum ranges. Certain distances will be better, some will be worse.
• OWNM's should no longer cause zone crashes if you mistakenly zone them.
• Fixed a bug where you might homepoint unintentionally.
• Fixed a bug where cover might cause you to crash.
• Fixed a bug where all melee weapons had an unintended additional delay of 500ms.
• Fixed a bug with hundred fists delay wasn't being calculated properly.
• Fixed a bug where you would lock up while fishing.
Sadly PUP didn't make it but it's coming soon!
|2019 Valentines Day Event!|
We here at the MEC(Moogle Event Committee) have been up to our wings in chocolate getting ready for that magical time of year when two hearts destined to be be together inevitably become entwined! To s-s-spread the love everywhere we're asking YOU adventurers to help us out!
To help us all you have to do is visit a festive moogle in Port Bastok, Windurst Walls, or Port San'dOria. There you will receive two pieces of chocolate. But one of them must be exchanged with someone elses chocolate to receive a matching pair. There are people throughout the starting cities waiting for those pair who can make them become one. Hand them over and they will give you back the chocolate melted back together. From there, bring the completed piece back to one of the festive moogles for your reward!
For those wishing to step it up a notch...
We need some chocolate delivered to Lower Jeuno, as well as Tavnazian Safehold. Now we're not saying to run out and get yourself killed... But if you do, we can assure you the reward will be worth your while!

|2018-12-21 Starlight Celebration & XP Event!|
It is I, Magical Moogle, wishing you the happiest of holidays! We will be beginning our Starlight Celebration right now!
Unfortunately the festive moogles have been so busy putting up decorations, they haven't had time to hand out their starlight cards. As a result, they would be very appriciative of you, the adventurer, passing the cards out for the festive moogles.
You can find a festive moogle in Port Bastok, Windurst Walls, Port San'doria, and even Jueno!
P.S. I talked to the big man, and he said he'll turn on empress/emperor bands until the 26th due to recent issues, so get that XP while the XP is good to get!
|2018-12-21 Launcher Update|
Phase I: Mobs & Missions has been implemented. Most notorious monsters have been removed.
Phase II will result in the removal of the gear rented from ezmode nm's, enjoy it while it lasts.
Beastmaster tuning (1 of 2) has taken place where charm levels were calculated improperly.
Dawn Mulsum has been adjusted.
Party revamp should alleviate most issues with parties.
Monsters should no longer agro through the floor on boats.
Please look forward to PVP in the next patch!
|2018-12-11 ToAU Roadmap|
Greetings players! The rumor mill has been full steam ahead, so I thought I'd shed a little light on where things stand and where they're going.
The Q&A is slotted to be finished before year's out. If you have not already submitted a question, you can do so on the maintenance tab of the account page. If you wish to change your question, simply submit a new one, and the old one will be overwritten.
ToAU was disabled a few years ago for a few reasons. The mobs were horribly broken, the content was uncoded or coded poorly, and a lot of work needed to go into the core to have it function properly. I felt that with current population levels hovering around 300 online at peak hours coupled with the massive amount of work that needed to go into the base game, RoZ, and CoP expansions, it was best that it would simply be disabled so all mobs were put at level 99.This prevented most of the content while retaining the ability to unlock the ToAU jobs.
Over the past couple years there have been tons of work on the the back end regarding mob ai, evasion, accuracy, and exp re-balancing. With population boom after population boom, some areas are becoming a bit cramped. I feel that at this point, focus needs to turn to re-opening up the ToAu expansion.
The expansion will be gradually phased in as content is completed:
• Phase I: Mobs & Missions - The mission aspect has been completed with only a little work needed on some of the battles to get them coded properly. The mobs are being completely reworked from the ground up, and there's over 3000 of them. Phase I work began two weeks ago and should be ready by week's end.
• Phase II: Quests & Notorious Monsters - ToAU has a ton of engaging quests and exciting notorious monsters. This type of content is important, otherwise it's just a hack & slash grind to the top. The most important factor separating FFXI from other MMO's is that there is interesting content at all levels, and we're going to keep it that way.
• Phase III: Assault & Besieged - I believe these are important into keeping the world dynamic, changing from one week to the next, instead of playing in a static environment. It adds a sense of realism to the world, and adds the ability for the players to engage and make a difference.
• Phase IV: ZNM's & Beyond - Not going to get to ahead of myself, we'll see how things are when it gets to this point.
These content updates will necessarily be sequential though. BCNM50's, 60's, and ENM's are still being worked on, BST and PUP re-balancing is also on the table. And Windurst 9-2 certainly has not been forgotten. These updates will come either separately or coupled with one of the ToAU Phases.
And last but not least, cheating/RMT is still prohibited, and will not be tolerated in any way. Another RMT sweep has gone through, this is critical to keeping a balanced economy and combating inflation. Please play fair™.
The Starlight celebration will be kicked off by a level 1 Fun Run from Beaucedine Glacier to the Cloister of Frost where players have to make their way without dying, the details will be announced closer to the event. The first 3 to arrive will receive special items, so please look forward to it!
It's that time of the year again where it's nice to sit back and relax, reflect on some of the things we're happy for. A time where family gathers around, we enjoy some turkey and other heavy foods, and rest up for that big shopping day.
I, for one, am grateful for my friends and family that surround and support me, a good career, and of course, my labor of love, FFXI. These things keep me going day in and day out. It gives life meaning and purpose.
So be sure to spend some time with friends and family and enjoy the holidays.
P.S. If you have no friends/family, or don't like them, screw 'em we got you covered. XP bands from now until midnight est friday.

Fixed an issue with claiming where you couldn't get credit if aoe'd mobs
